Another MAC coach gets on-the-job training in bowl
When Bowling Green coach Adam Scheier came to Detroit on Friday for the Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl news conference, he was following what has become a tradition for the Mid-American Conference champs - on-the-job training.
A week earlier, Scheier was the special teams coordinator when the Falcons upset No. 14 Northern Illinois at Ford Field, but he's now about to face his first game as a head coach at any level.
He took over the Falcons on an interim basis after Dave Clawson left to take to become head coach at Wake Forest earlier this week. It is the fifth time in the last seven seasons the winning coach in the MAC title game had moved before his team played in its bowl game.
